Wine Spectator | Rating: 88Compact and rather sulky, with notes of raspberry, river stone and anise that finish on a tight note. May open with time. Best from 2017 through 2022. 300 cases made.Author: James Laube
Wine Advocate | Rating: 93The 2013 Zinfandel Bedrock Vineyard from Sonoma originates in the home vineyard of Joel and Morgan Peterson, its vines planted in 1888. It is composed of volcanic, rocky soils and, like most of the vineyards for Turley, organically managed. This is a killer 2013 Zinfandel, with raspberry, black cherry, briary, berry fruit, some hints of subtle earth, pepper, spice and a nice, meaty, full-bodied mouthfeel, its terrific acidity giving it balance. The alcohol is slightly lower than some of the other big boys in the portfolio, coming in at 14.9%. Drink it over the next decade.Author: Robert Parker
